The Bauer Premium Performance skate sock is thin but still built for HOCKEY! There is targeted mesh ventilation zones to keep feet dry and comfortable. The knit rib arch support helps reduce foot fatigue. Bauer strategically placed double wall construction at specific areas to help reduce that nasty lace and skate bite. Made with the Thermo-max+ performance yarn technology that wicks away moisture and reduces odor, which means no more stank! This sock also has a unique Y-seam construction that improves sock fit within the skate and also eliminates sock bunching so in the crucial moments of a game your full attention is on the game and not your socks.
